Fire at Mount Pleasant Motors Causes Minimal Damage Thanks to Rapid Response from MPFD

There was a fire in Mount Pleasant on Wednesday evening at the Mount Pleasant Motors building. The staff were working on a vehicle when it caught on fire, which quickly spread throughout the rest of the building. Thankfully, the fire department has a weekly meeting on Wednesday evening, meaning an abundance of firefighters were able to respond quickly. The fire was contained to just the auto shop side of the building and was under control approximately 5 minutes after the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department arrived.

15 firefighters, 2 engines, tower 1, command 1, and a brush truck, all responded. The fire chief would like to thank Mount Pleasant Police Department and Mt. Pleasant Utilities for their assistance.
